Lips, LIPSTICK, NC20, SMASHBOX, Yishan | by — November 26, 2012


Brand: Smashbox
Range: Limitless Lip Stain & Color Seal Balm
Shade: Sangria
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • A two-in-one product with a long wearing stain in the shape of a marker pen on one end & a tinted colour seal balm on the other.
  • For best results, they recommend applying the stain directly on clean & dry lips, and allow it to dry completely before finishing off with the tinted lip balm whenever you need a moisture boost.
  • Sangria is a deep burnt red.  Also available in 5 other shades – Petal, Berry, Guava, Cinnamon, Nude.
  • Once you set it with the colour seal balm, it’s COMPLETELY transfer proof – won’t come off even when blotting or on tea cups.
  • Despite it feathering on my arm, it doesn’t seem to feather on my lip lines proivded that you stay within your lip area & not use it to correct your lip shape.
  • Feels quite comfortable & unlike any other lip stain texture (non-drying, not sticky, not watery, not taut, no synthetic scent). It just feels like a well-absorbed lip balm with no noticeable taste..
  • It took several applications to achieve full coverage, and fades into a “lived in” patchy stain several hours later.
  • Even though I close the cap on immediately after each use, the marker pen is noticeably drier than when I first bought it 2 months ago.  Pressing the marker pen against my lip seems to do the trick in releasing the colour.
  • Verdict: The trick to making this product work is to apply a full even coverage to ensure it lasts as long as possible before fading into a patchy stain.  Starting off with a sheer layer will only get you to a patchy stain sooner.  A big thumbs up for the colour seal balm in locking in the colour with a moisturising sheen, one of the best I’ve tried to date.   This lippy is a seasonal item for me, more for autumn/winter than a staple item in my makeup bag.

It took several applications to achieve full coverage & I find that it looks complete with the Colour Seal Balm.


RRP: $27.95 AUD / $23 USD
